The Play That Goes Wrong Show description

The Play That Goes Wrong is a comedy play performing at the Duchess Theatre in London until 26 February 2017. Described as Fawlty Towers meets Noises Off, The Play That Goes Wrong was dubbed as THE smash hit new comedy for 2014!

The hit comedy, essentially a play within a play, started life off with critical acclaim at the Trafalgar Studios in London’s West End, before embarking on a National Tour of the UK and then returning to London to take up residence at the Duchess Theatre.

Charles Spencer from The Daily Telegraph sums it up as ‘genuinely hilarious’ and ‘Funny to the bone’

The Play That Goes Wrong centres on The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society who are putting on a 1920s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does!

The accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences. Written by and starring Henry Lewis, Jonathan Burke and Henry Shields the play is directed by Mark Bell. This brilliant new laugh out loud comedy performed by Mischief Theatre Company has enjoyed two successful runs in the West End and was the sell out smash hit of the Edinburgh Festival with its sensational reviews, numerous accolades and awards. The Play That Goes Wrong is guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

Given five stars from the Daily Mail and called ‘ridiculously funny’ by Libby Purves,

Celebrity endorsements from the likes of Joanna Lumley ‘spectacularly funny and bitingly accurate’
